and #Streams https://codeberg.org/streams/streams
share the same code root but are two separate #Fediverse
projects started by @Mike Macgirvin
, who started 2010 also Friendica.
Mike nowadays just develops for Streams.
Both projects can handel user groups, have a fine adjustable system for privacy, access control, and content ownership, offer as many channels as you like to have under one account and offer the unique function for a "nomadic identity".
The DEV Team which keeps developing Hubzilla likes to consider Streams as important as "Sid" ( https://www.debian.org/releases/sid/
) for debian.
Besides other improvements the Hubzilla Dev team is porting time by time the mayor developments made in Streams (as possible) to Hubzilla and is keeping HZ up to date with AP and working with other networks like #Diaspora
Streams uses the ZOT12 / NOMAD protocol and is at the same time 100% #ActivityPub
Hubzilla uses the ZOT6 protocol + other Network protocols by addons + all kinds of functions like a Web CMS can have: #Blogs
and so on
Streams is focused "just" on federated content and is pushing new functions around that also into AP. So Mike is with Streams actually involved in the ongoing development of ActivityPub and truly the avant-garde here. Because Streams is focused on "fewer" functions - Streams may be more easy to get started with the Fediverse - Streams just offers the right tools here for you.
Hubzilla has also functions for "old school" Web publishing, for content which does NOT federate and offers also all the tools for the IndieWeb https://indieweb.org/
. So for communities and persons which/how like to have all kinds of Web publishing functions and which/who are not just interested and dependent on having communication with the AP Network - Hubzille is THE ultimate choice.
